Eugenio Suárez appeared in the training fields of the Cincinnati Reds as one of the great figures of the team, and his manager David Bell is aware that he can count on the Venezuelan beyond third base.
The Reds have serious doubts about who will regularly defend the shortstop position, so the name of Eugenio looms more than interesting to fulfill that role.
About that idea, manager Bell highlighted “We know he can play there. We have not yet discussed the possibility. We will not rule it out, but for now we will let it fit into practice. He's been a good third baseman for quite some time. "
The last time the Venezuelan played regularly as shortstop in the majors was in the 2015 season when in his first season with Ohio he replaced Zack Cozart, leaving in 97 games. 280 average with 13 homers and 48 RBIs.
The following season he would go to the so-called hot corner, where his offense took off until he became one of the best in that position.
